I do the majority of my grocery shopping on Sundays and stock up on tons of vegetables. I always have good intentions (don’t we all!), but by Thursday at least half of them are usually still in the bottom drawer of my refrigerator and starting to get a little soft and wrinkly. I hate, hate, hate throwing away vegetables. So I usually turn to one of two things to use ’em all up fast, either soup or stir-fry.
Stir-fry could potentially be the easiest meal out there. A little chopping of veggies, add in some protein, pour in some sauce, and saute. A meal that comes together in no time flat!
A friend gave me this recipe a few years ago and it has been our go-to stir fry marinade/sauce ever since! Both sweet and savory!
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
Whisk all of the ingredients together. Let stand for 10 minutes. Pour over vegetables or meat and allow to marinade at least thirty minutes in the refrigerator.
